The Ericofon is a plastic telephone made in one piece by the Ericsson Company of Sweden and it was marketed in the second half of the 20th century. It was the first commercially marketed telephone with the dial and receiver integrated into one unit. Due to its shape and its influence on future telephone design, Phaidon considers the Ericofon to be one of the most important industrial designs of the 20th century. It can be found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In Sweden, the Ericofon is known as the cobra telephone because of its resemblance to a coiled snake.
The colour is cream white.
The phone is used and in very good condition, including the rubber ring. The telephone is from the 1970s and from the Netherlands.
It still has the original PTT plug as well. Material is plastic.
